- Pastel Painting of Scaled Quail -

The Scaled Quail, also commonly called Blue Quail or Cottontop Quail, is found in the arid regions of the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico. Scaled Quail are swift afoot and often prefer to run rather than hide or fly. They tend to prefer areas that are open at ground level where they can use their running abilities. Their running makes them difficult to hunt, for once a covey is located, they often disappear into the landscape, leaving a frustrated predator. The Scaled Quail eats many different seeds depending on seed availability. The Scaled Quail does not migrate and maintains a home range. In winter they will form coveys of 5 to 150 birds, with an average of about 30 individuals.


My Pastel Painting of this Scaled Quail Pair was a fun part of my Quail Art series. The Six Species of Quail in North America, California Quail, Mountain Quail, Gambel's Quail, Bobwhite Quail, Montezuma Quail and Scaled Quail, have given me a real Appreciation of the Quail Species in Wildlife.
